Went for a friends 30th and staff kindly decorated our table with balloons etc that we bought and brought in before hand, even putting a giant fire work candle in the cake we brought at the end!

Food was lovely but a little pricey, but nothing ridiculously expensive. Staff were tentative and helpful. Good location near other bars etc.

Thanks for visiting the Classroom and taking the time to leave such a very good review. Our produce is sourced locally and when we buy the raw materials we pay a premium for quality ingredients, which we're happy to do. When you add this to the 20% vat the government add to every plate that leaves the kitchen, it all adds up. We keep the prices as low as we can and many haven't risen in a number of years, indeed some have come down.
However, your night was a great success and we're delighted you had a great time. Perhaps we'll have the opportunity to welcome you back for your 30th, when we can put an even bigger firework on your cake!!

One of us had a really good steak here, and the other a nice enough meal with fish (can't remember exactly). The waiting staff is very friendly, and the setting is lovely.

Thanks for visiting the Classroom and taking the time to review us. Our selection of prime Scottish an Highland beef steaks are always popular, as are our fish dishes (there are three seafood main courses on every night) so we're happy that you're happy.

We ate here on one of their busiest evenings (Nairn Agriculture Show day) but wanted to treat my dad to a nice meal on his last night visiting us. Despite a very, very vocal crowd and having to wait a wee while for our main course (the place was jam-packed) our food was out of this world! We all had different starters and main meals but we all finished every last morsel. The lemon sole main was the tastiest meal I've had in years & my husband said the steak was excellent and he's had lots of them to compare! Really polite waiters/waitresses + even an apology from the owner for the noise level. Reasonably priced too! All in all, absolutely fantastic & we'll definitely be back (soon) :-)

Thank Carol-Ann A

Carol-Ann, our Chef just loves you to bits!! Thanks very much for visiting the Classroom and taking the time to leave such a superb review. We're delighted you came to us for your Dad's farewell dinner, and that we exceeded expectations. You chose two of our biggest sellers in the lemon sole and steak, both hugely popular and with excellent feedback. One thing in particular stands out in your review.......it's normally the owner making all the noise!!
Once again thanks and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Visited during the week between lunch and dinner times. Only 1 other table with a wedding party also in the rest. Overall it was fine, we were just disappointed at waiting over 30mins for dessert. We had to ask what was happening to the order. To be fair to the rest we did receive the puds on the house but with only 2 tables in, I wouldn't like to see them in a busy period.

Our young Commis was on the pastry section that day while the rest of us were dealing with the wedding party. he was about to send your puddings when the chef checked them and decided they weren't good enough. They were redone and sent out as quickly as possible, free of charge as you point out. We tried our best to resolve the situation to your satisfaction and you seemed fine about it when asked. Other than beat the young lad with the handle of a brush, there's not a lot else we could do to make it up to you.
